West Monona Elementary was honored by a visit from Dr. Ryan Wise on Friday, September 29. Dr. Wise is the director of the Iowa Department of Education. Mrs. Black invited Dr. Wise to visit and see all of the wonderful things that West Monona is doing in literacy education! Dr. Wise took a tour of our fantastic facility with 5th graders, Trevor Jackson, Chase Lander, Aubrey Yanke, and Jaci McMinamen. He also visited classrooms to see interventions, such as guided reading plus, and the workshop framework in action. He visited Ms. Reinke's and Mrs. Fox's interventions with students. Then he was able to observe the workshop framework in literacy in Mrs. Krueger's and Mrs. Christo's rooms. It was a great day!
